Gamma and Phenomenal Unity

(p.146) Chapter 19 Gamma and Phenomenal Unity
Unlocking the Brain

Georg Northoff

Oxford University Press

How are neuronal mechanisms related to the phenomenal unity as manifested in phenomenal consciousness? The book proposes a “continuity-based hypothesis of phenomenal unity.” The continuity-based hypothesis of phenomenal unity proposes that the phenomenal unity is based on and supersedes the already constituted spatial and temporal continuity in the ongoing resting state activity. More specifically, the stimulus may be linked to the resting state’s ongoing spatial and temporal continuity.

Keywords:   neuronal oscillation, synchronization, gamma oscillation, phenomenal unity, objectual unity, access unity, rest–stimulus interaction, phenomenal state, phenomenal content, phenomenal consciousness, access consciousness
